Denver International Airport flies right with Aconex

Project name: Parsons Denver Int Airport | Industry: Aviation & PortLocation: Denver, Colorado, U.S.A.

The Denver International Airport (DIA) Hotel and Transit Center program is designed to enhance DIA’s competitiveness as a leading global airport and its positioning for future growth. The program includes design and construction of a 500+-room Westin Hotel and conference center, a public transit center including a commuter rail station to connect the airport with downtown Denver, a centralized pick-up/drop-off point for all Regional Transportation District (RTD) buses serving the airport, and a Public Plaza venue for programs and events. 

Challenges 

  • Large, complex program comprised of independent yet physically integrated projects requiring the involvement of multiple contractors. 
  • Ability to access and share documents between 116 different organizations – without the constraints of software licenses. 
  • 150,000 documents including drawings, photos and videos of up to 3 gigabytes in size. 
  • Multiple project phases, with transitions requiring efficient change management. 

Solutions 

  • Single online platform for project-wide collaboration across all information and processes, including workflow management. 
  • Multi-tenant cloud implementation to eliminate the requirement for individual user software licenses. 
  • Transparent document tracking, search and reporting for full accountability, with a complete audit trail. 
  • Distribution and management of all file types and sizes. 
  • Flexibility for new users and organizations to join the project at any time and get up and running quickly. 

Results 

  • One project document controller instead of three, saving approximately $100,000 in annual staffing costs. 
  • Elimination of bottlenecks for 2,000 RFIs and reduction in RFI turnaround time to 10 days. 
  • Full history of all RFIs from initiation to close-out. 
  • Reduced logging time and errors for daily reports and improved accuracy of weekly reports for faster resolution of field issues. 
  • Accelerated processing of change management documentation for availability to the entire project team. 
  • Iron-clad audit trail for comprehensive risk mitigation.
